Graham Potter’s Nightmare Return To The Amex Ends In Defeat As Brighton Beat His Chelsea Team, 4-1!

brighton vs chelsea

After a spooky first half full of mistakes, the Blues went into halftime trailing Brighton by three goals and hearing chants of “You’re getting sacked in the morning” from the home crowd.

Right from the start, Brighton put the pressure on Chelsea and took the lead after only five minutes. Leandro Trossard’s close-range shot was deflected off the defender Thiago Silva’s poor pass, which wasn’t even his first miscue of the game.

Kaoru Mitoma, making his first appearance in the Premier League, caught it and drove into the area, dodging Chelsea shirts before finding Trossard.

A mere nine minutes later, Brighton scored again, and Chelsea continued to be the architects of their own demise. Solly March delivered a quality corner kick, and a stationary Ruben Loftus-Cheek turned it into his own net.

The third goal for Brighton was also scored by an own goal. Trevoh Chalobah’s outstretched foot redirected Pervis Estupinan’s cross into the six-yard box to score (42), leaving Potter stunned in the opposing dugout.

Potter was booed by the home crowd before and after the game, and they chanted, “you’re getting sacked in the morning,” at him the entire time. In spite of this, Chelsea will finish this weekend in fifth place.

Despite Chelsea’s second-half dominance, it was Brighton who scored the game’s fourth, and in the process, Pascal Gross assisted on his 50th goal for the club. Gross scored the game-winning goal in stoppage time (90+2) after second-half substitute Edouard Mendy had made two saves on shots from Julio Enciso.

Brighton’s First-Ever Victory Over Chelsea

In the first three minutes of the game, the mood was already established. Caciedo headed the ball directly to Trossard at the top of the area after a poor pass out by Silva. Brighton’s forward swept the ball toward an open net with Kepa Arrizabalaga well off his line, but Silva dove back to clear it.

Silva’s mistake again set up Brighton’s first goal, and then a quick second from Loftus-own-goal Cheek’s put the visitors up for good. After falling behind 2-0 after only 14 minutes, Chelsea finally started to put pressure on Robert Sanchez of Brighton’s defense.

In spite of this, Brighton remained the more promising side, coming close once more at the half. Caciedo’s shot went just wide of the post and the side of the net after some beautiful combination play by Trossard and March in a crowded area. However, with less than a minute remaining in the first half, Chalobah scored an own-goal to give Brighton a 3-0 lead.

After halftime, Chelsea came out strong and scored to make it a one-goal game. With Mount’s attempted to cross through the area, Brighton did not back down from their risky lifestyle, and Sanchez was called upon to deny the cross.

The game’s intensity and the pace remained at a high level, and both teams had opportunities to score. Mendy’s bad pass put Mitoma in a position to find Trossard again. He attempted a chip over the goalkeeper, but Mendy was positioned well to block the shot. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang attempted a long-range shot on goal, but Sanchez was able to parry it away.

There Are Some Hard Lessons We Must Learn

“Brighton did a good job. It was a very charged environment, and we didn’t always start off on the same foot. When we were behind in the score, the atmosphere was intense and we made some mistakes.

The keeper made some great saves in the second half when we had our chances to attack. Ultimately, there may have been too much flexibility.

There Are Some Hard Lessons We Must Learn

We had a rough first half, but we came back strong. At 3-1, the game was close and we were pressing and substituting heavily, but Brighton deserved the win and we have to congratulate them.

The boys have battled through an incredibly demanding schedule that included numerous away games and gave 100% in each one.

They did it again today, and we have to hand it to Brighton; they brought the intensity and the energy, and we were the ones who struggled at the outset.

It’s tough when the scoreboard is stacked against you. We all win and lose together because they are trustworthy and accountable. Together, we need to assess the situation and move forward.

“It’s good to be back [in Brighton], at least up until the game starts. Three years flew by, and I feel good about the impact I made on the club and my career there. For the sake of the game, I was giddy with anticipation.

The First Quarter Of An Hour Was Amazing

I’m ecstatic for the team, the club, and the staff, as the fans were the most important contributors to our success on the field.

The First Quarter Of An Hour Was Amazing

“For the first twenty-five to twenty-five minutes, we were outstanding in terms of our activity without the ball, and when we had possession, we played both my way and their way. We play in our own unique way, and the first quarter hour was absolutely incredible.

I apologize for Chelsea’s goal because it was a silly one to give up at the start of the second half. I messed up because they shifted the strategic position while we weren’t prepared to adapt. Still, I can’t complain because that’s a fantastic outcome considering we were playing Chelsea.


Trossard, who is in fine form and full of self-assurance, scored again on Saturday. He led all players with six shots, four of which were on goal, and tied for the most touches inside the opponent’s penalty area with four (10 – level with Havertz).
